Lol! see what you mean.

okay i gave up trying to burn that .iso.gz because i think it's corupted. I am now downloading Darwin 801 again and am going to use 7-Zip (after advice from another post because WinRAR extracts the all files and NOT just the .iso (which is what i want) if i ever do get the .iso i'm going to upload it using www.yousendit.com and announce the URL to get it then maybe some people can host it (if legal of cource) so newbies like me have a slightly easier time of it.

Sorry :blink:
Darwin is open source:

and only sources (no iso) for the latest version:

Thanks man

So do i update Darwin once installed? i assume OSx has an Apple update or similar?

I think it's interesting that Apple OSx is based on FreeBSD!!! big shock. I hope that apple is a success as this will help the *nix technogys and maybe with colabration will help break the MS monopoly.

Darwin is the open-source core of Mac OS X. It can be run as a stand-alone OS (commandline only). If you install Mac OS X you do not need to separately install Darwin.

However, remember that while downloading and installing Darwin on a vanilla PC is perfectly legal, downloading and installing Mac OS X is NOT legal.
